Next year Bethlehem will be piloting a new Children Desiring God curriculum on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood. I am signed up to teach it.
I have fallen in love with complementarianism; it’s biblical and better than egalitarianism. I’m excited to learn and teach on such an important topic! I was considering teaching this next year but had some hesitations. When Connie told me that the curriculum for Wednesday night Connection was going to be this topic, I was so gripped by the subject that I almost said yes immediately (but thought better and put some deep consideration to it). She warned me there may be some flack about it (from the parents). Inside I was thinking “there better be, this is hard stuff! Bring it on!”
There are two primary reasons this gets me going so much. The first is this: I love complementarianism, but I have a difficult time articulating what it is. I can point you to Ephesians 5 or Colossians 3 for a few proof texts, but that’s not enough. I want to be able to show someone why this is the way God intended us to be.
The second reason has to do with teaching in general. I have been thinking about eldership lately, which has me looking for opportunities to teach. I have another opportunity this Sunday, when I will teach the last lesson for 6th grade Sunday School.
Pray for me.
